Japan Food Tour


Japan foodie tours for the culturally-curious and discerning traveler.

Refreshingly Unique Japan Food Tours

The foodie scene in Japan is diverse and exciting, which is why we love to show visitors around various cities to highlight the unique gastronomy in each location. Our Hiroshima food tour will offer you different cuisine than our Kyoto food tour, and the history and local insights will vary, too! The same for our Osaka food tour or our Tokyo food tour…we don’t stay in touristy areas. We make sure that, wherever you visit, you’re walking around the local neighborhoods and dining in local establishments.

Taking a food tour in Japan is an absolute must. You can learn so much about a culture by breaking bread surrounded by locals. That’s why we take you to our favorite tachinomi, which roughly translates to “standing bars” (though we sometimes sit). These are more akin to tapas bars than your late-night drinking bars. Here, you can eat like the locals, socialize like the locals, and get a glimpse into daily life with your local guide ready to answer any questions you may have.

Explore our our authentic Japan foodie tours below — all designed with love and passion for local food and cutlure.

Remember that Pinpoint Traveler’s food tours, unlike our competitors’, never ask you to spend money on tour. Your food and one drink at each restaurant is included.

How do our Japan food tours work?

We believe in being up-front about all costs, inclusions, and exclusions so you know exactly what to expect during our foodie tours. We never take kick-backs or force you to shop at specific places and we don’t have endless add-ons during our food tours.When we say that food is included, we mean it. You’ll get a dinner’s worth of food over the course of our evening tour, plus a drink at each stop along the way (alcoholic or non-alcoholic, it’s your choice).We also include plenty of cultural insights and stories about the local neighborhoods and people who live there, so you get more than just a full stomach on our food tours in Japan!
